Passengers flying to and from Italy are facing a day of disruption due to an Air Traffic Control Strike on Saturday.
Ryanair has cancelled 108 flights to and from Italy tomorrow, while Aer Lingus has been forced to cancel 10 services into and out of Dublin.
The latest strike follows several recent stopages by various ATC unions, which Ryanair says are "holding European consumers to ransom".
The following Aer Lingus flights are cancelled:
- EI 402 Dublin to Rome
- EI 403 Rome to Dublin
- EI 450 Dublin to Naples
- EI 451 Naples to Dublin
- EI 432 Dublin to Milan Linate
- EI 433 Milan Linate to Dublin
- EI 410 Dublin to Verona
- EI 411 Verona to Dublin
- EI 422 Dublin to Venice
- EI 423 Venice to Dublin
Ryanair has cancelled FR9428 and FR9429 between Dublin and Milan (Bergamo), and FR9432 and FR9431 to/from Rome Ciampino.
Airline passengers whose flights are cancelled are entitled to a full refund, rebooking onto the next available flight or an alternative route.

With the peak summer travel period looming, Ryanair has repeated its call for passengers to sign its 'Keep Europe's Skies Open' petition, which it is using to lobby the EU Commission and Parliament to take action to prevent future strikes.
